    TV Post Production Industry Standard

    • Written by from Sugarloaf

    Out of the box I immediately transferred 2.3 TB of video overnight. No problem. I started editing on AVID from the drive at home. There is certainly a little lag time when you press play, but for the price and capacity I couldn't be happier. I'm editing 1080p 60fps footage and it works. It's not nearly as good as editing from a Unity, but it's great to use from home. I haven't had it very long, but I know that every post house I have worked at in the last 10 years has used either G-Tech Raids or Lacie Rugged drives to transport footage.

    Has worked great for nearly 5 years

    • Written by from Pigeon Forge

    This drive has worked flawlessly for me since late 2010/early 2011. It's been around the world, put through some pretty rough conditions, and is still kicking. I've bought newer 4TB drives from WD and iOmega, planning to retire the G-RAID to a backup only, but the newer ones died, and I've returned to the G-RAID as my primary twice now.

    I'm surprised to see other reviews rate this drive so low. Maybe the one I have happens to be a diamond in the rough, but from my experience, this product is a tank. I agree with the other review that it's noisey when it runs, but I use it in loud work environments, so that's never been an issue for me.

    Very noisy drive

    • Written by from Teaneck

    The drive appears to be working fine, but it is INCREDIBLY NOISY! With today's technology, I see no reason why a drive approaching $400 needs to be so noisy. It sounds like it's constantly grinding away at something...I just hope it's not something bad or destructive.

    Dead Drive

    • Written by from san francisco

    Started to slow and finally died. I barely got my files off before it gasped for its last breath. I contacted G-tech and they never returned my email with questions about slowing. Then when it died G-Tech would not warranty the drive because it was 1 week out of warranty. I'm a professional user, would never buy this product again. They have lame duck service too. The only thing less reliable is Lacie.

    Great drive!

    • Written by from Fair Haven

    This is a great drive. I have a 2TB internal drive that I back up onto this G-drive with Time Machine. It works flawlessly. Even though it's two drives that come in one enclosure, it shows up as one drive on the desktop. Note that you have to use the included USB cable (if you're using USB) to connect it to the computer, not the USB cable from an older, smaller G-drive you might have.

    Raid My A...

    • Written by from GREENFORD

    What a disappointment.....

    It may be fast but this dual drive raid device doesn't really do raid. I was expected 2 drives in the enclosure to mirror them.... but guess what.... only one visible drive.... so no feasibility to mirror....

    So Raid Zero means Zero Use for me. I'm sending it back.

    Not happy

    • Written by from Montreal

    I just received my G-Technology 4TB G-RAID (FW) yesterday and today IT keeps auto-ejecting itself any time I try to copy large files to it. Disappointed.
